Today I was like a little kid waking up Christmas morning. I was so excited when I jumped out of bed and ran to turn on the TV.
I found The Weather Channel and was expecting to see the images and hear the sounds of Isaac making landfall this morning.
I had fully planned on sitting on the couch with a cup of coffee watching Mother Nature unleash her fury on the Gulf Coast because the last thing I heard before I went to bed was that then-Tropical Storm Isaac was going to hit land around 7 a.m.
Well, apparently Isaac decided it wasn’t finished cruising the coast and now is expected to make landfall sometime tonight, which totally sucks. It sucks because the video footage of the destruction won’t be nearly as good with everything happening in the dark. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want people to get hurt. I just want like watching all of The Weather Channel people struggling to stand in the winds.
I was disappointed but settled in to watch the endless coverage, and it wasn’t long before it seemed my eyes started playing tricks on me.
Turns out the two hosts this morning didn’t think about how their outfit choices might appear on TV with the giant mass of color swirling behind them.
I was informed by a one of my friends, who I think is also a “weather groupie,” that the woman on the right is named Heather Tesch and apparently she’s a big deal, to him anyway.
Tammy wasn’t really interested in Isaac but she perked up when she heard it was bringing 10 to 14 inches. I’m thinking she might be a different kind of groupie.
